Chilli & Garlic Lamb Kofte

Lamb 3This week I’ve tried to recreate one of our favourite meals from our local Turkish restaurant – not quite as delicious but not a bad effort and the mister was very complimentary.

What You Need

  • 500g lamb mince
  • 1 large onion
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic
  • 1 green chilli
  • 4 cream crackers (whizzed to breadcrumbs)
  • 1 egg (to bind)
  • 2 tsps Worcester sauce
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsps coriander leaf
  • 1 tsp mint sauce

Lamb 1What You Do

  • Whizz onion, chilli and garlic in a food processor (or chop very finely)
  • Combine well with mince, cracker breadcrumbs, Worcester sauce, paprika, coriander, mint sauce and beaten egg in a large bowl.
  • Form into 12 sausage shapes and thread onto kebab skewers. Drizzle with olive oil and leave in the fridge for an hour (optional, but helps to firm them up in my opinion)
  • Grill or BBQ for 10-15 mins, turning frequently until cooked through. Serve with rice and roasted vegetables or sliced in a pitta bread.

Lamb 2Tips & Tags

  1. Oh wow. My husband would love these. We don’t eat much lamb because I can’t eat it but it is his favourite and the little guy loves it too…maybe I’ll do them these as a treat and I’ll have poached eggs (best wife ever haha). #cookblogshare

    1. You could always try it with beef? Or even turkey mince. I love lamb but it’s good to have alternatives as lamb can be so expensive. Thanks for commenting xx

  2. Oh yumm. I love kebabs and koftas. I’ve made them with beef before and only eaten lamb ones. Your recipe looks really easy to make and I actually think I may have all the ingredients you list, which is very rare (that I ever have all ingredients :)) for me. #foodiefriday

  3. These look delicious and easy… and perfect for a garlic lover like me! I’m not sure what I cream cracker is…. but my favorite part about cooking is improvising! Well, that and eating, of course. 😉

    1. Ha ha – breadcrumbs would do the exact same job. Are you in the US? I’m not sure of the equivalent name but basically any plain, savoury cracker or normal breadcrumbs would work
